Short Bio: I am an artificial intelligence enthusiast. After the highschool I started my studies in computer engineering by attending the bachelor course in "Computer Engineering" at the Third University of Rome. Later on, during the master
I was originally focused toward machine learning solutions for computer vision problems. In this context, I was part
of a student exchange program and I developed part of my master thesis in Japan, at Tohoku University in Sendai. There
I worked on an autonomous car which became the principal subject of my master thesis. Indeed, my master thesis is about the automatic detection and classification of traffic signs and the vehicle localization problem. Within this context, I released a new dataset for computer vision benchmarks and I published my very first paper at an international conference.
After that, I was a researcher at the Sapienza University of Rome, Department of Computer, Control and Management
Engineering, where I have been teacher assistant for a bachelor course on robots programming and for a Master course in AI. I am part of the S.P.Q.R. team, a robotic soccer team of biped robots since 2015. Since October 2016 I am also working at the National Research Council under the supervision of Vito Trianni. Since November 2016, I am a Ph.D. student at Sapienza University. My main research focus is on swarm robotics and multi-agent systems.
